Full Schedule

Since ancient times, witches and magicians have worked magic with the aid of Familiars, or helpful spirits. Familiars may take the form of a beloved pet, a totem animal, or even a helpful nonphysical entity. Has an animal appeared in your life unexpectedly? Perhaps a stray cat that appears regularly, it's possible that it may have been drawn to you psychically. We will explore the history and creation of a “witch’s familiar,” also known as a spirit double or guardian spirit, and see how there is much more to these supernatural servant spirits and guardians than meets the eye. In shamanistic practices, the animal familiar is not a physical being at all, but a thought-form or spiritual entity. It often travels astrally or serves as a magical guardian. In addition to familiars, some people do magical work with what's called a power animal or a spirit animal. A power animal is a spiritual guardian that some people connect with. Join us as we delve into the world of “familiars”.
